    S&W Combat Magnum in 2 1/2"

    Made a trip to the candy store this last week and found a beautiful specimen of the Smith and Wesson Model 19-4 Combat Magnum sitting on the shelf. She has the red ramp, white outline sights and bluing is 99% with zero holster wear. Gun is the older "pinned and recessed" model. No burn rings on the cylinder face either. The cylinder drag ring is bearly visible so I know the gun was shot only a few times. Picked it up for a measly $350.00.

    This last Sunday I put 25 rounds of .38 through it and it shot like a dream. It's a shame she's too pretty to carry. This little jewel will probably go in the back of the safe and only come out on special occassions. I just couldn't pass it up.

    Good price!

    I guess your gun store in Kansas doesn't know how much S&W 19 snubbies are worth these days. $350 is a very low price for one. I paid $445 a couple of months ago for the one shown below, and thought I got a good price. It has a black matte factory finish instead of blue, as it was from a special order by the US State Department Diplomatic Security Service.

    I think your Model 19 w/2-1/2" barrel is a real find at that price Sarge. Locally, I see a few 66s, usually 4" but the Model 19 you bought doesn't seem all that plentiful. I'd have snapped it up in a New York minute. Congrats on a great revolver at a great price.

    My FIRST concealed carry gun was a Model 66 (the stainless version of the 19...). My dad now carries it!

    Sweet deal, around here they go for $500+ if you can find one. A few years age I found one a a pawn shop for $365 filed out the paperwork, paid for it and ran before the dealer could change his mind.

    I like my 19-5 even though I almost sold / traded it a few months ago.
    I put a set of Hogue grips on last month but it just sits in the safe like it has for the last 21 years.

    I think I'd be lucky if I've run 50 rounds through it in that time.

    You got a heck of a deal on yours!

    I have a 19-5 that I bought new in 1984 if I remember correctly. Mine has a six inch barrel and as such does not serve as a carry gun but I do like to take it to the range. I'll never sell it.

    Dredging up some memories...

    The first brand new, over the counter pistol I ever bought when I first turned 21 was a Model 19 w/6" barrel.
    That was in 1971 when not only was Montgomery Wards still around, but they even had gun counters back then.

    But the gun bug had bit and I started buying a few more pistols, so the Model 19 never saw more than maybe half a dozen boxes through it total.

    Fast forward to today, that 19 has ended up being a really sentimental piece being my "first" and all (they say you never forget your "first").

    So it sits, in 100% condition in original box with all the papers, just lounging at the back of my safe.
    I envy the guy who gets it once I'm dead and gone.
